Law is an underlying social science that lays down rules and regulations in order to govern the behaviour of human beings. These rules are necessary for society to function and they help to keep people from breaking the rules and damaging property or each other’s rights.
There are several types of sources available for locating legal information. These include case reporters, statutes, legal periodicals and law reviews. Some of these sources are published in print, while others are available on CD-ROM or the Internet.
Among the most common resources are legal newspapers and magazines, which can be found in print or on CD-ROM. These publications are published in different formats and often are based on local or national issues. They provide news and analysis about legal issues, as well as interviews with experts.
The library also has many books on various legal topics, including contract law, torts, property, and other areas of law. These are usually in looseleaf binders and may be located on the 4th, 5th or 6th floor(s).
A law book is a set of materials containing material about a particular legal subject. These books are usually arranged alphabetically by subject and are available in both printed and electronic forms.

Legal Periodicals are publications that have articles on legal topics written by multiple authors. These journals are typically published daily, weekly or monthly.

The Library’s collections of case reporters, statutes, and other primary sources are a great place to start your research. They contain information about specific cases, including their background and facts, as well as the court’s decisions.
One type of case reporter is the United States Code Annotated, which provides a basic outline of the law. This is an excellent resource for first-year students who are starting to learn the basics of the law and are interested in learning how to apply legal principles.
Another source of cases is the Federal Register, which contains court rulings. It is an important source for locating information about cases, and it can be used by all levels of the legal profession.
Law Review is a journal that is dedicated to covering new and significant developments in the law. These journals are typically published several times a year and contain scholarly articles from legal scholars.
These articles are typically in the form of a discussion or debate between two or more lawyers, and they can be helpful for understanding the law and gaining insight into how it works. These journals are available in the library’s Nexis Uni database.
